Call for Papers – European Journal of Homelessness Vol. 9, No. 2, 2015 – Open Edition


The Editors of the European Journal of Homelessness welcome contributions to the Journal which
analyse and interpret aspects of policy and practice in relation to
homelessness and housing exclusion in Europe. Articles that explicitly address
cross-national issues are particularly welcome.

To be considered for inclusion in the open edition of the
Journal, papers must be submitted to Professor Eoin O’Sullivan (
by the 8th of May

The distinctive readership of the Journal, which cuts across academic
disciplines, national boundaries and includes NGOs and policy makers at the
local, national and transnational level, makes the following points of
particular importance to contributors. (1) Whatever the specific aspect of
homelessness under discussion, the relevance of the conclusions to a broad
understanding of policymaking should be made explicit; (2) whatever
the national setting, the extent to which conclusions are generalisable
should be explicitly discussed; (3) jargon should be
avoided and technical terms not widely understood should be clearly defined; and (4) the
conclusions of statistical analyses should be set
out in prose
, as well as being supported by relevant quantitative
information in tables, footnotes and text.

Articles considered for publication in the European Journal of
Homelessness will be double blind peer reviewed, and should be policy-relevant
contributions not previously published
. Articles should fall within the
range 6,000-8,000 words, and include an abstract of between
150 and 200 
words, up to six keywords, and a list of references (the word count includes the abstract
and any footnotes but not the list of references). Any graphics should be
produced in black and white only.

Author details and contact information should be included in the
body of the e-mail, and should not appear on the manuscript in order to
facilitate the anonymous peer reviewing process.
